Tantric Energy Pump
Sexual energy is life force energy. It’s creative energy. It’s manifesting energy. Tantric and sexual energy, rooted in our second chakra, becomes even more powerful when we draw it out and beyond the sexual center into the rest of our energy centers. Drawing that energy upward and outward also extends our most pleasurable intimate experiences, deepening and lengthening our peak moments.
Drawing energy upward extends our most pleasurable intimate experiences, deepening and lengthening…
So how do you begin to move that energy upward? With your Tantric Energy Pump.
So let’s talk about how to prime your love pump, so to speak. Tantric love expresses itself through the movement of energy both within your body and between your body and a partner’s body. (And you definitely don’t need a partner to practice this important technique!)
In the practice of Tantra you’ll learn several ways to move and circulate your energy and one of those ways uses the muscles in your pelvic floor to move energy upward through the energy channels that run along the spine.
Energy is moved upward through the energy centers of the body beginning with the root chakra at the base of the pelvis at the perineum.
The Sacred Sexual Energy “pump” that we’re talking about here starts with PC (pubococcygeus) muscle. This is the same muscle that stops the flow of urine when you want to.
Here’s a practice for you… To start pumping this energy, put your attention and awareness on your root chakra and then inhale slowly as you move your attention up the spine through the whole body. As your breath reaches the crown chakra at the top of the head, hold the breath for several seconds while contracting, squeezing, and holding your PC muscle. Imagine you could squeeze it upward and inward. After holding the breath and keeping the PC muscle squeezing inward and upward for several seconds, exhale and relax completely. Repeat this a few times and notice how you feel.
Next, try inhaling slowly imagining the breath and energy coming all the way up the spine and, once you’ve inhaled all the way to the crown chakra, hold the breath and this time repeatedly squeeze and release the PC muscle. Squeeze and release. Squeeze and release. Squeeze and release. After several seconds, relax the PC muscle completely and exhale. Again, feel what you feel.
As you get better and better at using these muscles to pump and move energy, you’ll want to start practicing this during your self-pleasuring or lovemaking, especially as the energy and pleasure are rising to higher and higher levels.
Practice strengthening your love pump by squeezing your PC muscles every day… You can do it anytime and anywhere you want. (No one will know!)
In love, light and ecstasy,
